“A Cork Jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Not as intimate as The Everyman Theatre but still a fantastic venue. It's great that Cork has a theatre of this size but it's even better that it's such a lovely venue with a great bar, friendly professional staff.

I don't go here half enough. I'll have to change that soon.

Top class venue.

“surprisingly good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

I had visited Opera House some eyars ago for lunch. At that stage, it was poor wuality sandwiches with tea/coffee. What a surprise to visit recently to see a lovely restaurant in the foyer. Food was fantastic. I only had soup and brown bread, but guest had minute stake. What a mistake I made!

I've been back since for the steak and you could not fault it. I think it would be great to dine here pre theatre, but you do not need to be a theatre goer to dine.

“A real asset to Cork!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

A wonderful location, and a beautiful building. A lovely way to spend an evening. The opera house itself is a lovely building, with bars/ coffee dock for a pre-show drink.

“Panto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Went last December for the annual Panto. Been going to this event now for the past 16 years and still love it. The staff are very friendly and very obliging. Beautiful bar setting and lovely little cafe area at reception. Absolutely lovely nite out.
